Description Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a family of thousands of synthetic organic chemicals. PFAS can withstand high temperatures and survive highly corrosive environments. They are used to manufacture coatings, surface treatments, and specialty chemicals in cookware, carpets, food packaging, clothing, cosmetics, and other common consumer products. The Final PFAS Chemical Action Plan identifies, characterizes, and evaluates uses and releases of PFAS, and recommends actions to protect human health and the environment.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
